Once you have a molcajete filled with chicken, shrimp, steak, cactus, cheese, onions, tomatoes, and salsa verde, you will have a special place in your heart (and stomach) for Zapata! The tequila and mezcal options are amazing and delicious. The tequilas are infused in-house and make for wonderful cocktails. I love the tamarind margarita! There are also very high-end tequilas...

We went to this restaurant last weekend - we asked the maitre d' if their beans were vegetarian and she said "yes" and sat us down. We saw one "veg" dish on their menu, and we decided to ask if we could have any of the other dishes made vegetarian. The waiter who served us was "Paleo" and he said... More

Went for lunch. The food was great. I had a lamb taco and the thursday special. It was great. The staff was very attentive and the food even better. I'll definitely be back for dinner so I can try the tequila.

We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant, in historic Norcross. It's acute small downtown area to visit anyway, but the menu here was a great treat. Different choices than typical Tex mex. we had a grilled cheese app, and the hand made Paloma drink was very good. Definitely a good choice for a different Mexican meal!

Had a party with 15 people and the service and food were great. They were very accommodating and helpful with the big crowd , the meal , the dessert. Management gave us a gift card as a present and we went back for dinner to use it. Really good food and great service.

We met at this restaurant to spend some time with friends with whom we don't get a chance to just sit and visit. Mistake! The food was good, but don't come expecting any kind of deviation from what's on the menu. My requests were met with "we don't do that." It is loud, and the tables are crammed in with... More

I sometimes call it the fancy Mexican restaurant. This place is a little less TexMex than most of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. It's also a bit pricier, but you do get an interesting set of food choices that you don't get at many other Mexican restaurants.

4 of us had dinner at Zapata on a Saturday night. The meals were fantastic but the margaritas were even better. Made with fresh fruit and absolutely stunning. The chili relleno was a real hit as were the crepes with chicken and a chili cream .. We would order both again every time we go. The hangar steak was done... More

I come to Norcross regularly, and this is always my place to go to dinner on Friday nights(2x a month since November 2015), after flying into the ATL airport. Complimentary chips and salsa, and really great friendly service. I have been there for dinner and drinks, and they offer a wide-variety menu to suit many tastes. I am vegetarian, and... More

First, can’t comment on the food, because we came for the drinks. And that we did! House flavored infused tequila, drinks in authentic Mexican Coke bottles and superb margaritas were just some of the drinks the 6 of us sampled! Good beer on tap as well! Waiter / bartender / service was a little slow for a Sunday night, but... More
